The engine is without a doubt the most important part of your vehicle. It acts as a heart for your car, making sure all of the gasoline that is pumping into the tank is turned into mechanical energy. This ensures that your vehicle has the energy necessary to move. The engine is made up of two major parts: the cylinder head (the upper part), and the cylinder block (the lower part). When either of these parts is performing incorrectly, your engine will begin to shut down, if it starts up at all. It’s important to contact a Maple Grove engine mechanical repair service at the first signs of a problem with your vehicle’s engine to ensure that your engine does not shut down entirely.
Wear and Maintenance
One of the most common causes of engine wear is improper vehicle operation and poor lubrication. Even waiting too long to have your oil and oil filter changed can pose negative effects to your car’s engine. After roughly 10-25,000 miles, lubricating properties in the oil you use will begin to deteriorate, causing an increase in friction and temperature within your engine, which will lead to premature wear. That’s why it’s so important to check your oil level carefully and frequently. You don’t want to be putting excess oil into your car due to an inaccurate reading of a dip-stick test, as having too much oil in your engine can also have negative effects such as leaks from your car’s oil pan gasket and crankshaft sealing.
Be sure that you are regulating your vehicle’s cooling fluid level as well, as low levels can result in engine overheating. If you’re unsure what steps you should take to properly up-keep your engine, or you are unfamiliar with how to check your levels, consult one of our technicians today. Having the proper lubricant levels could not only save you time and money, it could save the life of your engine.
Frequency of Service
If you aren’t sure how often you should have your engine serviced, consult your owner’s manual for more information. If you hear a loud knocking sound when driving or feel your car having a hard time starting up, please be sure to bring your car in to our shop for an evaluation. It’s much better to fix the problem before your vehicle’s engine gives out completely, and it will save you a lot of time and money in the long run. Our Minnesota engine mechanical repair service will make sure any and all problems with your engine are taken care of and that you have the knowledge you need to maintain your engine in the future.
